Kids Club And Launching A New Ministry

Dr. Greg and Pastor Mike had a busy couple of days. These two are from Trinity Presbyterian of Harrisburg, PA and are working with us for the week.

Kids ClubOn Wednesday Dr. Greg, Pastor Mike, Erin and our Mike went to Armenia Bonito. The big event for the day was Kids Club. We put on a great bible study for 40 kids. They played games, did a craft and heard the story of Noah. The kids were tested on their catechism question and their verse memorization. The guys from Trinity were super active and involved.

All day Thursday we helped Mike and Ashley Troxell kick off their ministry in our new community of La Fe. Mike and Ashley have begun daily ministry in La Fe and are working towards a church plant there.

Clinic in La FeGreg and Mike helped us put on our first ever ministry event in La Fe. It was a medical clinic that treated more than 60 people. Since this is one of the poorest communities in La Ceiba there were lots of sad cases and really sick people. Showing God’s mercy and love to these people was a great way to introduce our team to this new community.

It was a great past two days.

Kids Club, Catechism And Obedience

On Tuesday Erin continued the new wildly successful format for our weekly Kids Club in Armenia Bonito. This new program is much more structured and the kids love it.

ballons and babiesFollowing some crazy and energetic balloon games the kids sat down for their lesson. The theme of this week’s study was obedience. The kids heard a detailed story of Noah and his unwavering obedience to God. They were challenged by the extreme nature of Noah’s obedience in the face of humiliation and mocking.

The kids did a wonderful job with the bible verse memorization. The kids committed John 14:15 to memory. Erin explained how obedience is a way of showing love.

The craft for the day was gluing together and coloring the parts of Noah’s obedience. Each kid walked away with their very own depiction of Noah on the boat with the animals.

Each week dozens of kids are memorizing verses, hearing bible stories and receiving a lesson of about God. And, they are enjoying it.

Unassisted Triple Play

Mike and Madison are the only members of our mission team in Honduras. The rest of our team, including Erin, is out of the country tending to business. For this week Mike was called upon to keep our ministry going on his own. Of course, this is nothing any of our teammates wouldn’t also do.

Mike teaching EnglishOn Monday Mike taught ESL in Armenia Bonito. The 22 students were given puzzles and coloring books. As they worked on their materials Mike walked around to each individual and quizzed them on the English names for the colors, body parts and animals in front of them. At the end of class the students were gathered together and Mike read a few bible stories from Spanish picture books. On each page Mike stopped to quiz the group about the English name for something on that page.

They were read the story of creation from Genesis and Mike acted out a gospel presentation. The kids continued their weekly catechism lesson. They memorized two verses and then lined up to receive individual testing on their weekly verse memorization and catechism questions.

Mike at Medical ClinicAll day Thursday Mike hosted a stripped down version of our weekly medical clinic. He provided multivitamins and checked height, weight, blood pressure and blood sugar. Where needed the patients also received pills to kill parasitic worms or Advil for pain. All 25 of the patients received individual prayer and evangelism.

Our entire team returns to Honduras on Monday.

Building Doors And Opening Minds

The eight-person mission team from Covenant Presbyterian Church of Paso Robles, CA endured the heat on Tuesday.

Later in the morning the group walked to our ministry center and raised the final two 1800 lbs. trusses for the roof of our indoor soccer field.

Kid's ClubAfter lunch the team helped put on a Kids Club for 30 kids. They helped love on the kids and teach a lesson that had to do with explaining how the Bible is not simply a book of stories. The kids enjoyed the energy of the Covenant team. These kids love to play and enjoy receiving attention.

On Wednesday Covenant continues construction work and will take the kids to the river for a little fun. To receive pictures, stories and prayer needs about Covenant’s work follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and this blog.
